I am trying to figure out hot to make, and then import my own class.
Any help would be appreciated.

So here is my code on attempting to make my own constructor.




Am I starting off on the right foot? Can anyone help me on where I go from here?

I want to eventually be able to import this, and use


Anyone?

You're OK until

Instead of "int = 0;", use "age = A;"

You will also want to include getAge() and setAge() methods like your getName() and setName() methods.

Then you're golden.

hi,

If the Person class is not in the same package as the other class, You need to place Person class within a package and import the package.

Also the package needs to be in classpath

Hi Sean,
Did you get this sorted out?
If not, could you post the full code for Person and the class that uses it (sean?) - including the package & import statements at the top of the class.
The error looks really weird - like it thinks that the class is called Person. rather than Person - maybe you compiled it with javac Person..java by mistake? (Though I'm not sure that javac would let you do this). Also, if sean is a class, it should start with a capital letter. Package names should be all lower case.

Regards,
Louise
